Omni Prep Multi-Sample Homogenizer
Available from Omni International Inc
The innovative Omni Prep Multi-Sample Laboratory Homogenizer is specifically designed to streamline the labor and time intensive homogenization process and to make it more comfortable for the user. The Omni Prep features our new Whisper Drive Technology – a brushless motor that is virtually maintenance free, is ultra quiet during operation, and uses about 10% of the power required to process 6 samples individually. Unlike brush motors, Whisper Drive Technology guarantees accuracy and repeatability, since the motor holds it’s processing speed to +/- 1% accuracy throughout the homogenization cycle, regardless of fluctuations in sample size or sample viscosity.
A specially designed oscillating sample rack holds up to 6 tubes from 2mL to 50mL in size. Microprocessor control allows the user to program time (to 10 minutes) and speed (500 - 30,000 rpm). Sample volumes of 0.25mL to 30mL can be homogenized using 5, 7 or 10mm stainless steel generator probes or with Omni Tip™ Plastic Homogenizer Probes. Omni Tips can completely eliminate cross-contamination as well as the time consuming cleaning step associated with use of stainless steel generator probes. Omni Tips™ are so tough they can homogenize frozen tissue and may be disposed of, reused, or autoclaved.
The Omni Prep is also suitable for sharing. As with a multi-sample centrifuge, an Omni Prep in the laboratory can elevate productivity and dramatically improve workflow.
